Which of These Decade-Old Cars Is Right for You?

Not too long ago, the average 10-year-old car would probably have been ready for the scrap heap. Today, these vehicles typically have plenty of life left in them. In fact, now that the average age of vehicles in operation on America’s roads stands at just under 12 years, a 10-year-old vehicle is actually younger than average. With some vehicles being able to last 16 years or more, 10-year-old cars can be ideal candidates for people who need dependable transportation at a price that is affordable.

It is, of course, necessary before buying any used car to examine it carefully and have a professional mechanic take a look before signing a contract or handing over any money. You want to be sure that the vehicle is in good condition and that all the systems necessary to ensure your safety are present and operating properly.

On the following slides, we will take a look at 11 vehicles that are attractive options for buyers looking for value. Not one has an average price exceeding $9,000, and several could cost you less (in some cases, much less) than $5,000.
